Glamis Castle

So much of Scotland's history and heritage is to be found just a relaxed twenty-minute drive from The Red House Hotel and Glamis Castle makes for a day to remember.

The late Queen Mother's birthplace is home to Scotland's biggest Vintage Car Rally in July and in June, hosts the Strathmore Highland Games. It is a living, breathing monument to Scottish heritage, hospitality and enjoyment for all. 

As soon as you enter the grounds through the Queen Mother Gates and see the stunning towers and turrets which are nestled at the end of the drive, you can't fail to be impressed by its majesty. Steeped in rich history, the castle has evolved over the years to become a stunning architectural treasure full of vitality to this day.

Inside, each and every room has its own story. The castle's evolution and its legendary tales are brought to life by enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guides. Each painting, piece of furniture and little detail along the way are a reminder that this is not only a museum but an incredible family home which has witnessed everything you could imagine, from Royal births to being the setting for Shakespeare's Macbeth.
